Hurricanes can be a real concern depending of course on where you live. Before our relocation to Tennessee we had considered the Carolina’s, events such as this are why we decided otherwise. Move out of such a zone if you can, or have that ‘bug out’ bag ready when the weatherman says go. Continue reading “What Type of Events Are You Preparing For?”
